This lovely lady is from the Spanish set Quinceanera. While we will not be celebrating that in this household, I could not resist using this large image for a bridal shower card. She is versatile for many occasions. Don’t you love her?

This card is so simply made…these are the brand new 2014-2016 in colors sprinkle with a bit of glitter. The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts and the butterflies are from Papillon Potpourri. These new In colors will be available for order at noon on June 2nd. Ask about my In Color Club.

This Tag Topper Card is easily made with the Countless Sayings Photopolymer Stamp Set. I used the retiring colors here, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, and Primrose Petals. This would be gorgeous in a variety of color schemes and is quick and simple to make.
It is the Stamp Club by Mail card for May!

These cute little critters were made using the stamp set Simple Stems. The fuzzy little flower, turned upside down in bright colors makes these fun and great for many occasions! Add google eyes for added fun.

This is the Stamp Club mailing card for April. It is quick, easy and fun to make. The smokey Slate card base will match beautifully with almost any color. Picture this with accents of Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise or Real Red.

Stamp sets: Flower Shop, Cycle Celebration
Card stock: Smokey Slate and Whisper White
Black StazOn ink
Daffodil Delight Chevron Ribbon

You can accentuate with punched flowers and colored rhinestones (like I did here) or with buttons.

Try it yourself!

Simply Stamped, simply beautiful. No cutting and put together in a matter of minutes. These can be easily stamped in large numbers to keep on hand.

This card uses the Sale-A-Bration set Petal Parade and the greeting is from Four You. I used Bermuda Bay and Island indigo, but would also be beautiful in so many color combinations.

This is an original design. It was inspired by my customer Christina. When I mentioned that I wanted to do this stamp in gold, she asked if I could combine it with purple…..here you go Christina 🙂

Ingredients:
People Like You Stamp
Elegant Eggplant CS cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
Gold DSP cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″
Whisper white cut at 4 1/2″ x 3″ and scrap
Decorative Label Punch
Gold Stamp Pad
Elegant Eggplant Stampin” Pad
Crushed Curry Stampin’Pad
StazOn Black ink
Sahara Sand Stampin’ Pad
Old Olive Stampin’ Pad
Blender Pens

I stamped the greeting one extra time in Gold and then punched it out. I popped it up on Dimensionals over the original stamped image.
There is a special technique I used to create that soft, 3-demensional look to the flowers. Stop by Monday night to Club and learn the technique. Can’t make Monday but want to learn? Come to an open stamp and I will share it with you.

Love to read? Me too! And, now I have a great way to save my page. This would be a great little extra in a card for a teacher at the end of the year or for mom on Mother’s Day.

Ingredients:
Happy Watercolr Stamp Set
Strawberry Slush CS cut at 6″ x 2″

3/4″ Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon

This card can be done in so many beautiful colors and it would be as gorgeous! I choose to stick with the color scheme that Beth McAlexander originally created it in.
Ingredients:
Happy Watercolr Stamp Set
Love and Sympathy Stamp Set
Pool Party cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
Basic Black CS cut at 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″
Whisper white cut at 2 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Sweet Sorbet DSP-scraps for the butterfly
Black StazOn Ink
Pool Party Stampin’ Pad
Blender Pen
Bitty Butterfly Punch
Basic Jewel Rhinestones
2 Way Glue Pen

A little trick to give the butterfly a little extra dimension ( and you all know how much I like dimension and pop!) is to cut a dimensional in half and place each half on the top part of the butterfly wings. Then, add a little two way glue to the center. Peel off the backings to the Dimensionals and press and hold down the center of the butterfly until the glue dries….a moment or two.
I can see this card as a Mothers Day Card as well, with a different greeting, of course.

Isn’t this card beautiful? It is so quick and easy to makeover, the original was inspired by Kris McIntosh.
Ingredients: Simply Fabulous Simply Sent kit
Strawberry Slush CS cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″

Scrap Whisper White and Pistachio Pudding CS
Strawberry Slush Stampin’Pad
Million and One Stamp Set
Petite Petals Stamp Set
Bird Builder punch (for the leaves)
Petite Petals Punch
Basic Pearl Jewels
Simply use the cut work note card from the kit and adhere it to the card base. Stamp and punch your flowers, punch your leaves and layer onto the card base. I did use some Dimensionals on some of the flowers, but not all. Finish off with some pearls in the center of the flowers and Your finished!
This can be done in any color. The key to it being so elegant and clean looking is to stick to one color for the card base, flowers and inks.

This month’s Thank You card for anyone that placed an order with me. It is a little more work, but I think well worth it…..how about you?
I used the Gold Fancy Foil paper from the Occasions catalog. I embossed the greeting from the stamp set Simply Celebrate and heat embossed in gold glitter. I added some Gold Baker’s Twine bows to some. The greeting is matted in Gold Foil Paper. All these items can be found in the Occasions Catalog!

These are made with the Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards that can be found in the new Occasions catalog. Quick, easy and simple! Note the Petite Petals bundle and the Blessed Easter stamp set that I used on these–also in the Occasions catalog.

These were designed for a pre-teen birthday party I did this week. They are 8 1/2″ x 11″ scrapbook layouts that will go in clear, acrylic, stand up frames. Is anyone old enough to remember the Polaroid frame on the yellow page? Like this post if you remember them and I will have a sweet treat for you! They are made with the On Film Framelits in the Occasions catalog.
